How to Fold Napkins

How to Fold a Napkin

I enjoy cloth napkins as up to I love napkin rings! In reality I enjoy them so much that whenever you are looking at with them at a dinner, I wind up hiding the offending articles and use paper napkins instead! However, you will find things that cloth napkins are capable of doing that its paper counterpart can't. Then one of them is a well presented, beautiful fold at the center of your plate. Besides, when it is an official dinner, it is usually far better to use cloth napkins than paper ones.

Here I'll share with you some of the best methods for how you can fold napkins.

1. Napkin Ring Roll
2. Knot
3. Cone
4. Pocket
5. Surprise Package
6. Ascot
7. Offset
8. Fan-dango
9. Fan
10. Butterfly

1. Ring Roll
Being someone who is designing and creating napkin rings like a hobby, this fold (or roll) is of course my very favorite as it is the simplest way to flaunt my creations.
(a) Fold a sizable square napkin into quarters.
(b) With all the loose edges in the bottom, start rolling the napkin from bottom up (this way your rolled-up napkin won't show the loose edges)
(c) Secure your rolled-up napkin with a ring.

2. Knot
(a) Fold a big napkin into half diagonally.
(b) Start rolling the napkin beginning from the folded corners.
(c) Tie a knot at the center of the rolled-up napkin.

3. Cone
(a) Fold a napkin into quarters.
(b) Using the loose corners on the top, lower the initial layer to just about half way down.
(c) Repeat with second layer leaving about One inch between the two points.
(d) Turn the napkin over. Fold in the sides.
(e) Turn in over once again. Slide in cutleries in to the pocket if you want or let it rest as it is. You may also decide to es (http://pocketpussytoy.com/) leave just a little 'something' about the napkin as deco. I enjoy leave a wine glass marker to ensure that my guests could have a little bit of fun using it their own glasses).

4. Pocket
(a) Fold a napkin into quarters.
(b) With all the loose corners at the top, fold down the top layer so it meets the purpose at the end.
(c) Turn it over. Using the two tips from earlier positioned at the bottom-right corner, fold in the left side first then a right . You might secure the best folded side to the tiny "triangle pocket" the truth is about the left.
(d) Turn it over and slide inside your cutleries.

5. Surprise Package
(a) Fold a napkin into quarters.
(b) Using the loose corners on the top, fold the napkin from left to right (or right to left) into accordion pleats.
(c) Slide a napkin ring to the core napkin and bunch it at the very top and bottom.

6. Ascot
(a) Fold a napkin into quarters. Make sure that what exactly with the loose corners are aligned well, iron if you have to.
(b) Using the loose corners in the bottom, fold down the top corner.
(c) Turn the napkin over. Fold inside the left and right corner with an angle, i.e. the very best fringe of nearly everywhere side has to be less than the middle.
(d) Change it over. If you are satisfied with the way works out, press right down to crease the sides. This can be a the right fold to show off your monogrammed napkins.

7. Simple Bouquet
(a) Fold a big napkin as shown in picture. Be sure that some 'triangles' you see towards the top are equal in dimensions.
(b) Pinch the 'middle point' from the napkin and slide in the ring towards the core of the napkin.

8. Fan-dango
(a) Fold a napkin into half.
(b) Make an accordion pleat across the narrow length of the napkin.
(c) Slide a napkin ring to the center of the napkin, or alternatively, you can tie a ribbon on the middle. Fan out your sides.

9. Fan
(a) Fold a napkin into half.
(b) Make an accordion pleat along the narrow whole napkin.
(c) As opposed to sliding a napkin ring towards the center (or tying a ribbon here), leave the ring (or ribbon) close to either side.

There are many ways to display the fan fold. Here are a few ideas.

10. Butterfly
(a) Fold a sizable napkin into half, diagonally.
(b) With the folded side at the end, fold within the nearly everywhere sides so the meet within the center. Make sure every one of the tips/points are aligned together.
(c) Fold underneath point as much as within an 1 - 1.5 inch from the top point.
(d) Then fold the top down in order that it touches the low side of the napkin.
(e) Change it over. Fold in the left and right side with the napkin. Secure the corner to the little triangle pocket from the other.
(f) Turn it over again. Open the bottom side with the napkin so that it can stand up-right.
(g) Pull on the right and left 'wings'.

Which is all for the time being. I am hoping you've enjoyed the tutorial on napkin folding and that it has given ideas.
